How can I find info on my recently deceased mother’s Gap policy?

Gap insurance covers the difference between what your car is worth and what the insurance company is willing to pay out if it’s totaled. This only applies when the car is involved in an accident that totals it; if this was the cause of your mother’s passing, her gap insurance may cover the remaining balance.

Can I remove my deceased husband from my claims history?

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to remove him from the history of the policy, but if you are getting new quotes, it would be best to obtain proof that the claim was not in your name. Most insurance agents will be able to dispute a claim if they are provided said proof at the point of sale.

How do I obtain insurance in the name of the estate?

You can have the driver of the car insure the vehicle in their name since you are planning on selling it. If you were not selling it, the insurance would need to be in the name of the registered owner.

Eligibility

Can I insure a vehicle my dad left to me in his will if the title and registration still have not been transferred to my name?

If the vehicle is your only mode of transportation then you should be able to insure it since you have an "insurable interest" in the vehicle. However, if you are involved in an accident where you are considered at fault then your father's estate could be held liable for the damage you caused.

What do I do if my parents left their vehicle to me in their will?

In most cases, people listed as an additional driver on an auto policy where the primary policyholder dies are still covered to drive until the renewal of the policy. Since the primary policyholder is no longer living, they do not have the ability to give another unlisted driver permission to operate the vehicle.
